垂直肌理:密度的地景

100個建築師 100個塔樓

Hong Kong Exhibition Vertical Fabric: density in landscape, demonstrates the urban conditions of Hong Kong and explores the freespace through towers. 100 Exhibitors, including architects from Hong Kong and overseas, are invited to design their towers of freespace, making statements on tower typology in the vertical city. 100 white tower models of 2.0 meters in height are open for the 100 exhibitors to re-define the spatial potential while maintaining its envelope as a collective urban form. The exhibition manifests innovation within constraints while generating extraordinary spaces from ordinary form. By installing 100 towers marching along the courtyard extending into exhibition rooms, the venue illustrates the compactness of Hong Kong‘s urban form and provides a platform of dialogue with the world, shaping a discourse of Hong Kong’s urbanism and vertical architecture. It also provides architects with opportunities to re-think the design of tower beyond, incubating visions when facing global challenges in technology, environment, and society.

2018威尼斯雙年展香港展館以“垂直肌理:密度的地景”為主題,透過一百座塔樓的模型再現香港高密度的城市空間,經由塔樓的形式探索自由空間的意義。展覽倡導限制的創新,在平常中創造出非凡。策展人提供100座兩米高的塔樓模型基座,保持相同的外部尺寸作為一種都市集體造形,參展建築師在這個限制的基礎上重新創造和定義塔樓的空間形式。策展邀請了香港和海外的100多位建築師,共同探討高度限制的塔樓如何追求建築的“自由空間”,在香港垂直的城市空間中如何建立塔樓類型的空間論述。

通過100多幢塔樓模型的配置沿著庭院進入室內的大小展廳,展覽再現緊湊變化的香港都市形態,提供了一個香港與世界對話的平台,建立一個香港都市主義和垂直建築的論述。展覽更為建築師提供一個挑戰常規塔樓的設計機會,在全球化語境下提出能應對技術、環境、社會和文化挑戰的垂直“自由空間”。
